What is a .005 file extension?

.005 file extension is created by Igor Pavlov. .005 has been classified as Archive and compressed Files.

.005 is Compressed file from a multi-volume archive (part 5)

The 005 file extension is associated with several archivers or compression tools, which are using, or did use in the past, the 005 file extension for its multi-volume files or archives, such as Winrar (see part5.rar) or 7-Zip (see 7z.005).

The general file sequence is 001, 002, 003, etc.. and you will need all parts of the multi-volume archive to successfully extract the content.

How to open:

To open or extract the content of the multi-volume archive just put all the parts in same directory and extract the first part in your favourite archiver, such as WinRar or 7-Zip.

How to convert:

Only complete archive can be converted in to another archive or compression format. The easiest way how to convert complete multi-volume archive is to decompress the archive with the use of supported archiving or compression tool and repack the content with another compression or archive application of your choice.
